Basic Algebra I.5 (Operations on Ideals)
Given ideals I and J of ring R, we can perform the following operations to obtain new ideals: is an ideal of R; is an ideal of R; is an ideal of R. Thus, IJ is the set of all … Continue reading

Basic Algebra I.4 (Ideals and Ring Quotients)
Our first naïve attempt is to take a ring quotient R/S for a subring S of R. First, (S, +) is a subgroup of (R, +) so we can denote every coset R/S by x+S for some x in R. … Continue reading

Basic Algebra I.3 (Subrings and Ring Products)
The concept of subrings follow naturally. Let R be a ring. A subring is a subset S of R such that: (S, +) is a subgroup of (R, +); S contains 1; for any a, b in S, ab is … Continue reading

Basic Algebra I.2 (Examples + Basic Properties of Rings)
Examples The set Z of integers forms a ring under addition and multiplication, but the subset 2Z of even integers forms a rng. The set Z/nZ of integers modulo n forms a ring under addition and multiplication mod n. We have rings Q, R and C, which are … Continue reading

Basic Algebra I.1 (Enter the Rings)
In this series, we will cover some common algebraic structures – other than groups, which had been amply covered in the Group Theory series. However, due to the considerable depth of many of the topics, we can only provide a brief … Continue reading
